The USA climbed a few notches in FIFA rankings thanks to the August draw against Mexico, and the new Klinsmann era continues with a pair of Labor Day Weekend matches.
Things kick off Friday with the USA versus Costa Rica from the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Costa Rica made it to the Quarterfinals in this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, but have only one win out of four matches since then, including their appearance in the Copa America.
The next match is the USA against Belgium at their home turf, the King Badouin Stadium in Brussels. The Red Devils are on something of a rebound currently, having qualified for the Euro 2012 tournament after missing out on the last two cycles.
As with every match, we will gather downtown at Fado Irish Pub at 214 E 4th Street, an Official US Soccer Bar. Bring a friend to their first soccer match to get them a free beer. Become a member yourself at the match for a free beer. All thanks to the Free Beer Movement. Fado has free wifi if you want to bring a laptop from the office for the Tuesday game!
